Just Foam

Linde at the Fakuma 2018

Linde AG of Düsseldorf, Germany, is presenting its portfolio of processes, systems, and services for gas-assisted processes in the plastics processing industry on the booth it will share with Maximator GmbH. The spotlight is on its "Plastinum Foam Injection Molding", a thermoplastic foam-injection process developed in cooperation with the Kunststoff-Institut of Lüdenscheid (KIMW) and the ProTec Polymer Processing GmbH. Prior to insertion into the injection molding machine, pre-dried plastic granulate is loaded with CO₂ physical propellant.

Compared to other physical foam injection molding processes, the investment costs are low, simply because several machines are fitted with one "Plastinum Perfoamer" unit that can also be retrofitted to existing machines. This process enables the typical advantages of foam-injection molding to be utilized, such as reduced part weight and shrinkage, as well as the lower locking force required. The manufacturer claims the process is especially suitable for shear-sensitive plastics, such as long fiber-reinforced thermoplastics (LFT granulates), since it scarcely damages the materials. Both KIMW as well ProTec will demonstrate this method in processes running on their booths.
